Verona – Dante – 2

It’s interesting to note that the events on which Shakespeare based his play, Romeo and Juliet, happened around the time Dante was in Verona. He even mentions the Capulets and Montagues in Canto VI of Purgatorio.

Juliet’s tomb can be visited in Verona at the former convent of San Francesco al Corso.
